Meet a miracle

Here’s a simple question:

“What’s the most important reason for supporting 40 Days for Life?”

There’s a simple answer:

Your gift can save a baby.

I have had the privilege of meeting nine children saved from abortion during 40 Days for Life campaigns … and today I want YOU to meet one of the most amazing.

The child signing the 40 Days for Life bus is Milagros, whose mom chose life during a 40 Days for Life vigil in California. Her name means miracle.

You may have read about her in the 40 Days for Life book … but maybe you haven’t heard the rest of the story!

When Rosa, Milagros’ mom, was pregnant … she was facing a number of overwhelming challenges in her life. And on top of all these other difficult circumstances, she was told the child she was carrying would be profoundly disabled.

The “experts” all had a recommendation.

Abortion.

Rosa really didn’t want to have an abortion, but she didn’t think she had any other options.

She made an appointment at a large abortion center in Orange, California. But when she got there, the first thing she saw was faithful 40 Days for Life volunteers praying on the sidewalk.

And that’s when God took over!

The volunteers knew there were better “choices” for Rosa, so they connected her with some of the best prenatal specialists in Southern California. These incredible doctors were honest with Rosa, and acknowledged to her that the baby would be born without legs.

But they also said this was a healthy child and there was no reason whatsoever to abort her!

The volunteers and the specialists worked with Rosa to help her meet both her physical and medical needs … and when her baby was born, Rosa named her Milagros — a true miracle indeed!

The little girl who signed the bus is five years old now!

Because of your prayers during the campaign that just ended, 637 babies were spared from abortion when their mothers chose life at the last possible moment.

They were scheduled to be aborted … but they are alive today — and often it was the sight of faithful people just like you praying outside the abortion center that made all the difference in the world.

Since 40 Days for Life started as a coordinated effort in 2007, we are aware of 13,305 children whose mothers had a change of heart and said “yes” to life.

Because of those 13,305 blessings — including Milagros — a handful of committed 40 Days for Life participants have put up a matching challenge of $120,550 …

… so our work can continue to grow and more babies can be saved from abortion.
